I have V&H longshots on an 02 fatboy.

I made the mistake of polishing the muffler sections with a white cream metal polish which actually damaged the surface. The muflers don't have the original hi luster shine anymore. The polish actually has fine abrasive in it which works ok on aluminum but scratches chrome.

I've tried to buff the mufflers but I can't seem to get the original luster back. I am thinking of using some other compound but am not sure what to use.
Any sugestions?

Thanks,
Steve67

I'm partial to Simichrome polish and a soft cloth. On more stubborn areas I use it along with a felt buff on a Dremel moto-tool. Works on all metals from aluminum to stainless to gold... Oh yeh, chrome too!

I use good old turtle wax chrome polish for everyday cleaning also use semichrome on aluminum and chrome , but the turtle chrome cleaner comes off eaiser. semichrome and a lot of elbow grease might take out scratchs in chrome, I suppose it depends how deep they are.
